Thumbs up

I recently removed our Catalina 2500 awning from our 16' Scamp because one of the inner poles was bent pretty bad and it would not work correctly. I left the three brackets that are mounted to the roof of the trailer. Not really wanting to pay $450 for a new Catalina awning, can anyone suggest another awning that would fit those brackets spaced at the width of the Catalina?

Ideas, suggestions?

Thanks!!

Why not just replace or repair the bent pole?

I couldn't find replacements poles for the Catalina....it was buy the whole thing or nothing. The inner pole that was bent actually attaches to the inside of the awning encasement....it looked like it would be a nightmare to replace even if they made a replacement. I really don't want to drill holes in my roof for a bag awning rail.
